Panel on vertical and horizontal social differences in Iran
The Islamic Revolution of 1979 in Iran was driven by an egalitarian ideology elaborated by the post-colonial sociologist and activist Ali Shariati (1933-1977). This ideology was drawn upon by the leaders of the revolution to mobilize the Iranian “mostaz’afin” (the oppressed) against the monarchic regime that they depicted as “mostakberin” (the arrogant/the oppressor).
Whilst the 1980s were characterized by somewhat egalitarian ideals and policies, with the rise of neo-liberalism in the 1990s and the restoration of the “rentier state” (Skocpol 1982) new forms of vertical social differences have emerged (Farzanegan & Alaedini 2017; Maljoo 2017; Nomani & Behdad 2008). Moreover, the new ideological orientation of the state has reshuffled the horizontal social differences – for instance along milieu, gender, ethnicity, faith etc. (Elling 2013; Majbouri & Fesharaki 2017; Mir-Hosseini 2017; Tohidi 2009).
The panel addresses social differences in post-revolutionary Iran in the broadest sense of the term including, on one hand, its objective dimension (social stratification, habitus, social mobility, poverty etc.) and, on the other hand, its subjective dimension (perception of, and attitudes toward, inequalities, identity demarcation of social groups etc.).
